It's not always easy to fit into a busy schedule, but going to the farmers' market is worth the trouble. Coming face-to-face with the people who grow your food allows more than just the opportunity to ask about the intricacies of what you are buying and how to handle it, it brings you a step closer to the land that bears your food. Understanding your food's process from seed to plate, and speaking with the people responsible for putting it there is crucial in forming a meaningful connection with your food. -

While its rise to worldwide 🌐 fame has been relatively recent, Rooibos has been cultivated by the Khoisan of western South Africa for centuries. 🇿🇦 They too would drink it as a tea, chopping up and fermenting the leaves and stalks. Sadly, the boom of Rooibos across the world has put the traditional, wild cultivation of Rooibos at real risk, as land where the plant grows wild is cleared, to be filled with commercial crops, that are harvested too soon and too voraciously. -

In 2015, Lise Brunborg established Stavanger Ysteri, an #artisan cheese factory 🧀 in the heart of Stavanger, in Norway's south west. Using only raw, organic milk from a local farmer, Lise has already been lauded for her #delicious cheeses, taking home gold medals 🏅🏅 for two separate cheeses at the Norwegian Cheese Championships last year. The success of Stavanger Ysteri in such a short time flies in the face of the idea that urban environments cannot be home to high quality food production, and Lise runs courses in cheesemaking, hoping to pass on her methods and inspire future cheesemakers to follow the path that she is forging.

Our intrepid youth network is past the halfway mark of their courageous (and slightly crazy) #GirodiSFYN ️🚴 cycling from #Amsterdam to #Turin for Terra Madre Salone del Gusto! Along the way, they have been visiting farms and producers, and spending time with locals (of all shapes and sizes! 🐄) -

The traditional method used for making Tushuri Guda cheese date back 6,000 years: raw milk is poured into an inside-out sheep skin, and the cheese ripens in direct contact with the wool! 🐑 Sadly, this process has lost its popularity, and most commercial cheeses are now produced in #plastic bags instead of sheepskins, and the ancient methods have all but disappeared. But things are starting to brighten up for Tushuri Guda, as our reporter David McKenzie (@eatsnleaves) discovered on a recent trip to Georgia. With a potential PDO rating in the works, and the tireless work of some very committed young cheesemakers, Tushuri Guda might just be making a comeback. Read the whole story at Slowfood.com

Get hands-on with the Taste Workshops, learning (and tasting!) all about your favorite foods, or discover some new ones. For lovers of all things baked, there are heaps of sessions planned at La Fucina, putting the woodfired oven to good use. Sorry celiacs, this one's not for you, but head over the the Terra Madre Salone del Gusto website, and have a browse through the workshops on offer! -

As if Finland needed any more reasons to warrant a visit, the fantastic Karjalanpiirakka, or Karelian pie, pretty much justifies the trip on its own. The little, open, oval pastry consists of a thin rye base filled with a sort of purée, generally of rice, barley, potato, or some mix of the three. Owing its name to its origins in the region of Karelia, which is now shared by Russia and Finland along their shared border, the earliest recording of a Karelian pie was in the 17th Century. One of Finalnd's national dishes with good reason, in the heart of a cold winter (and in Finland it gets pretty damn cold) there are few pleasures so gratifying as sinking your teeth into a fresh, hot Karelian pie, with a lashing of butter for the extra greedy.

A healthy, balanced diet means making sure that you are eating a good mix of different foods and nutrients from a range of different sources. It's healthier, more colorful, and more tasty! -

As a way of salvaging any imperfect #pecorino cheeses, the
cheesemakers of the Belice Valley in Sicily's south west had the brilliant thought of turning them into a different sort of cheese: Vastedda. The photos tell the story, the 'original' pecorino is first
sliced thinly and put in a large (often wooden) vessel where first hot whey, then almost-boiling water make it ferment and become something of
a cheese 'dough'. This is stirred, worked, and stretched with a long wooden paddle, the vaciliatuma. This stretched out cheese is then
divided and portioned out into little flat dishes, which share their name with the cheese, vastedda, owing to their shape. The presidium was created to protect and promote this unique, aromatic cheese, Italy's
only stretched sheep's mlk cheese!
